to the floor to speak about the bilateral strategic agreement and the fact that president karzai has refused to sign the proposal offered by the administration. since we have been in afghanistan, 2,285 americans have given their lives for our country and 19,514 have been wounded. the time has come for congress to understand history. from the days of alexander the great to the british to the russians, no one has ever changed afghanistan. the american people are tired of the cost of war, both life and money. as i said yesterday, it is my hope that in early 2014, the leadership of the house will permit a debate and a vote on the agreement that will obligate our country to afghanistan for at least 10 more years. i realize that the vote will not change the agreement, because the president does have the authority, but this will give us a chance to represent the people of america who the majority are opposed to this agreement. it is unacceptable that we will continue to spend billions of dollars at a time, according to special inspector general, the waste, fraud and abuse is worse in afghanistan to
deal. it's a bad thing president karzai is playing politics with this and not getting on and doing it. it is crucial. there's an election in afghanistan next year. the question will be is there enough credibility in that election to keep the security situation under control and it will require some continued presence of american forces there. >> you mentioned china and perhaps the continued slow down on the chinese economy but we're seeing think it week, a rise in regional tensions driven by chinese nationalism over this disputed set of islands. what happens in that region in terms of national security and how, if you were sitting in the white house or if you were taking your magazine to the white house tomorrow what would you be warning them about regional tensions? >> i think it's another very good example of where america is so essential that without the american presence there, without america being prepared to hold the fort, that situation could easily get out of control very fast. >> we're looking at the prospect of some sort of military conflict? >> potentially unfortunately yo

. particularlyan and provennt karzai have difficult to work with. now you are seeing comments from chuck hagel starting to say we might go ahead and pack it up. i think it will be interesting to see, this is such a politically delicate matter. to see where the white house comes down on this. we had a similar conversation to ago as we were packing up from a rack -- from iraq. the issue was whether troops were going to grant immunity from prosecution, and the pentagon agreed they would not leave any troops. so we had a complete withdraw from a rack. it looks like we might be going down that road in afghanistan, too. the next few weeks will be critical to that discussion because the dod needs in the next few months to begin to plant whether they will literally pack up -- to plan whether they will literally pack up every tank, soldier, housing unit, and put that back on a boat to the states or whether ony will leave the footprint the outskirts of kabul for the long haul. that takes a long time of planning and forethought. on ouroodson in florida, line for retired and active-duty military. see thei
. jones: the letter respectfully reminded the president that president karzai continues to thumb his nose in the eyes of the american taxpayer. we have seen many news articles reporting karzai refusal to sign bilateral strategic agreement that this administration has proposed, an agreement that would obligate united states money and united states troops for at least 10 more years in afghanistan. in an associated press article printed in my state paper tiled "afghanistan president delays deal," the subtitle goes on to read, "u.s. says it will pull out troops if security agreement isn't signed." mr. speaker, it is my hope that the house will encourage the president to pull our troops out and stop spending money we do not have in a country that does not even want our help. furthermore, it's my hope that the house and senate leadership will in 2014 allow congress to vote on this issue of the bilateral strategic agreement. mr. speaker, it is wrong that the afghan parliament may vote on whether they want this agreement with the united states, but the house and the senate that represent the amer
